R I N G M A S T E R

I am a grain of sand

Surrounded by acrobats, elephants and red & white stripes

The acrobat swings above, coming closer and then moving further away

The elephants stand so heavy, so stuck and yet so fluid

The red & white stripes spin manically atop

So chaotic it goes, the ground below expresses its frequency

The ringmaster efforts to harness

Like the eye of a storm, I remain calm

Centered in all this madness

I am a grain of sand

Ringmaster takes on the energy of this chaos at times

At times, the sounds fall behind and I witness the chaos

I realize I am that of the ground and that of my ringmaster

I am that of the elephant and that of the red & white stripes

I am that

And, I am none of that
